Although previously considered a way-station on the road to Hegel, F. W.J. von Schelling is today enjoying a renaissance among Continental philosophers andothers. The 14 essays in this engaging volume bring Schelling in tune with suchluminaries as Heidegger, Derrida, Bataille, Foucault, Deleuze, Levinas, and Irigarayand situate him squarely in the center of current themes and discussions in suchtopics as ethical alterity (the other), deep ecology and the question of nature, therelation of aesthetics to nature, the crisis of truth, the possibility ofnon-dialectical philosophy, and the possibility of a philosophical religion.Established scholars and newer voices cast light on Schelling and GermanIdealism.

For too long Schelling's philosophy has been seen as no more than a transition from the philosophies of Kant and Fichte to that of Hegel. In recent years, however, Schelling's philosophy has begun to be recognized as worthy of study in its own right. Complementing The New Schelling (2004), ed. by Judith Norman and Alistair Welchman, this volume of 14 essays, edited by Wirth (Oglethorpe Univ.), constitutes a crucial further step in establishing the importance and contemporary relevance of Schelling's philosophy. Schelling Now is divided into three sections: New Approaches, Rethinking Concepts, and Schelling and Contemporary Philosophy. Although this last section demonstrates the relevance of Schelling's philosophy to that of Heidegger, Merleau--Ponty, Levinas, Nancy, and Nishitani, none of the essays effectively argues that Schelling has insights not achieved by those other thinkers or that his philosophy can be seen as having advanced, avant la lettre, beyond theirs. Moreover, Schelling's philosophy has not yet been brought into the conversation of analytic philosophy. Not until these occur will it be fully rehabilitated. Summing Up: Recommended.
